There is no shortage of B&Bs in pretty little Broadstairs, Thanet's cutest seaside resort, but Belvidere Place blazes a trail when it comes to boho boutique style. The setting, although convenient for the train station and the beach, just moments away from the shops and restaurants of Albion Street, may not be the prettiest in town (it's opposite a small parking lot), but the interior is a treat. Behind the elegant flat-fronted Georgian brick exterior are five large double/twin guest rooms individually furnished with quirky art and retro flea market treasures. The shabby-eclectic-decadent aesthetic is all very on trend – a stylist's dream – but it's Belvidere Place's big heart and honest welcome that elevate it way above many other pretenders to this kind of offbeat style. Real fires roar in the old fireplaces in winter, while fresh flowers fill rooms with fragrance in summer, when you can also relax in the sweet walled garden. Breakfast is a convivial affair, eaten around the communal table in the welcoming dining room, with an ever-changing selection of seasonal, locally sourced food prepared with love by your host.
